Soul Food

I walk to the house and see Fred with Chloe dancing to Charlie Puth’s Attention song. I seat down and watch them. They are holding hands and dancing to the beat although Chloe has just one kind of dancing style. I laugh.

As the music comes to a stop, Fred collapses to the seat next to me. He looks at me and asks how the Doctor’s appointment was.

“It was good. He tested me and found that I was not pregnant.” I respond.

He smiles at me. “I told you so.”

“Yes you did. But why were you so mad that I could be pregnant?” I asked.

“I don’t know. I was not prepared to have another kid just yet.” Fred added.

“Me too. It would have been a big surprise.”

“Yes it was.” Fred said. “Now, please promise me that you won’t forget to take the pills?”

“I think I should take a more permanent solution than pills. I should have an implant.”

“I think you should talk to the Doctor about it first.” He said.

“Yes. Ill go next week. But in the meantime, I will continue with the pills.”

“Yes girl!” Fred shouted.

“How was work?” I ask.

“It was really good. Today I had the opportunity to sell an idea to the boss on how to apply some program in order to ease the time used in delivering and selling the products. He was impressed.”


“Yeah, he told me he will give feedback in a few days.”

“That’s nice. I am so happy for you.” I said.

I went to the bedroom and hang my handbag next to the bed. I undressed and went to the shower. The warm water was so good. I undid the bun that I had and washed my hair. After I was done, I wiped myself and put on a shirt dress. I then collected all the dirty clothes and did laundry. Since I do laundry once a week, I decided to do them today so that it does not pile so much.

Fred was in the kitchen cooking his favorite food, mashed potatoes and chicken stew. I could hear him singing on top of his voice with Chloe trying to imitate him. Those two make me happy!

As I was waiting for the food to be ready, I decided to check on Ann. She was at home feeding her babies. She was good. Mike too. I tried asking her about how it is between her and Mike and she quickly cut it short and told me to chat. I guess Mike was nearby.
